One of the funniest shows on TV right now is The Office and this September Season 6 finally arrives on Blu-ray and DVD! Some of you may know that this is an American remake of a hugely successful British series that starred Ricky Gervais. In my opinion, this new version is far superior in every way. With a stellar cast led by funny-man Steve Carell, this is a ground-breaking show that consistently makes me laugh. One of the rare things about this show is that they cast wears several hats as they also frequently write and direct some of the episodes as well as produce the show. The show has also attracted some big name guest directors like Harold Ramis (Caddyshack, Analyze This) and Joss Whedon (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity and the upcoming Avengers). Do yourself a favor and start watching the show! Here is the full press release for the Season 6 set:
